The last few weeks of the year typically involve the gathering of family and the practicing of  traditions.  

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and after sliding pies in the oven I gathered the scraps of dough, rerolled it out, and cut random shapes to make pie crust cookies.  Encouraged by my husband, my mother-in-law described to my son how her mother would make pie crust cookies for their family, sometimes even without the intent of a pie in mind, and sprinkle them with brown sugar and cinnamon.   With a simple a story my son made a connection to an ancestor he never had the opportunity to meet and now he has that knowledge to pass on to a future generation.
